I'm still alive and kicking. Just haven't done any sewing. Had the newbies over again last night to work on garb. Actually made on tunic myself. After hearing the stories, I'm a bit scared to let them near the machines!! Anyway, they should all have at least one thing to wear within a couple more visits and they will know how to make them themselves. I might have to have a couple of weekends as well, wear they come and sew all day, rather than having it on the Tuesday night.
